    Glad to hear Skarsgard is getting more roles. He’s as talented as he is handsome.

  • AllForUSophia

    Sounds brilliant, although I don’t think there’s much point remaking this… Hey, any excuse to see Alexander Skarsgard on the big screen :)

  • aliza

    Alex… is soooooo HOT (he should come visit us in London)

  • christine

    The guy in the blue on the right, with that cute facial pose he’s making has always been attractive. Which is why I never understood why he went for certain roles that were cheesy . He was kinda boring in X-Men. He needs to learn to be more intense and not just “sitting pretty” in his roles. Some people have a face where they can’t really move it and it either looks boring or more appealing.
    I’ve always been attracted to guys that had face-cuts like Chris Pine and this guy in the blue shirt.

    Yay! I LOVE Alexander Skarsgard! He’s so hot! But not to take away from his talent, I love his works too.

    I’m excited we get to hear more about him, hope he gets more roles :D

  • sunny

  • AllForUSophia

    @Megan: You are so right!

  • S


    The guy you keep calling “guy in blue” as a game! If only you’d take the time to read the article. Plus, he as done many more roles that don’t have him “seating pretty”.

    FYI, his name is James Marsden!

  • Rachel

    i love alexander skarsgard and i love true blood

  • fairycake

    Kate and James together again!!

  • Annabelle

    Alexander Skarsgard has always been getting lots of roles, it’s just that now Americans and the entire world know him because of True Blood, but he has a very extensive acting resume in Sweden. He’s very well-know and well-regarded over there. Also voted Sweden Sexiest Man Alive 6 or 7 times!!!
    He’s great. Amazing actor. A natural.
    Also HOT HOT HOT!
    I’m a huge Alex fan.
    I’m too very excited that he’s moving into the Hollywood big scene. Looking forward to see him at Comic Con 2009!!!!
    He’ll be there on the 25th of July.

  • joan

    I’m really happy to see ASkars doing more, but I just wish this wasn’t it. A rapist? A remake of a rapist at that? There’s got to be something better out there for this gorgeous and amazing actor.

  • Christina

    alexander skarsgard is incredibly talented and very sexy

  • Liza

    Jared heeded the call for more Skarsgard:-) I’m not sure about this film and don’t like Bosworth that much. He would have made a great Thor. Hopefully this film will do well and/or be a stepping stone.

    I gasped when I saw Alexander’s picture! He is soooo freakin HOT! I loved him in Generation Kill and I’m loving him in True Blood!

  • eden

    any day, any time Alexander. you’re too good of an actor to be sharing a screen with Bosworth and Marsden!!! love yoU!

  • Perri

    Nah, I hope he never becomes a fixture on this site or any other. I like my favorites under the radar and not overexposed. Once in a while is fine, but on a regular basis, no thanks.

  • no!

    You can’t re-make a classic!
    This has FAIL! written all over it.
    Especially if they have cast this bunch of lightweights.
    For those of you who aren’t familiar with the original, rent it. And after you watch it, see if you can honestly see any of these three in those roles.
    Hollywood, I hate you!

  • Coffee

    Yup, SkarsGOD is a hottie and a good actor to boot.

  • double toil and trouble

    Seems a little too dark for my taste but the guys are hawt!!!
